This question needs a little more detail about the working environment to
obtain sensible answer.

WebDAV works using http(s) protocol.  That means one can retrieve data from a
WebDAV service, providing one has authorization to access, via any web browser
or command line utility like curl, fetch, and wget.

If one is using a GDM like gnome/mate then the Nautilus file browser can
connect to a webDAV server.  Again presuming that one has the authentication
credentials which give authorized access to the WebDAV resource.

FreeBSD also has a fusefs module for setting up a WebDAV resource as a
filesystem that makes it appear as a local resource to the OS.
